Wizz Air has announced plans to launch four routes from London to Turkey.

The low-cost carrier will operate daily flights from both Gatwick and Luton to Istanbul airport from March 28, 2023.

Wizz will join Turkish Airlines on the Gatwick-Istanbul route, while Luton-Istanbul is currently unserved.

In addition the airline will offer four-times-weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) flights between Gatwick and Antalya starting from March 26, followed by four flights per week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) between Gatwick and Dalaman starting from May 23.

The Gatwick-Antalya route will operate year-round, while the Gatwick-Dalaman service will be summer seasonal.

The news follows the recent launch of Wizz Air flights from Gatwick and Luton to cities in Poland, France and Italy.
